Subject: Classy Stan Laurel Comedy
If there were A-pictures and B-pictures in the silent era, this had to be an A picture.

It has an interesting plot -- Stan goes to get his inheritance and gets mixed up with some wild-west bandits who want his money. Stan's persona as a sweet innocent is in great contrast to those dirty roughnecks.

There are a lot of good sight gags -- the silents were so good at those. Even the special effects (like Stan getting thrown out a 2nd-story window) are much smoother and more believable than such things usually were in silent movies.

And, I liked the accompanying score, which is a sort of ragtime pianist playing semi-familiar hits from the era, like "Johnny get your gun" and "Over There." There was one (I think) ragtime standard which I couldn't name. (Maybe it's a piano duet -- there sure is a lot of playing going on.)

All in all, a good, classy Grade A silent movie.

Thanks for nothing. Why did you bother to put a movie on this site that you new was improperly encoded. I hope someone who knows how to use a video program gets a hold of a good copy and uploads a playable file. A big let down for serious Stan Laurel fans.
